750 tamales were sold by Morton East’s work program the last week of October to celebrate Day of the Dead.   Morton East prefers the green chicken tamales — they were the most popular.

The Día de los tamales, the tamales that people are selling, are green chicken, red pork, and veggie pepper with cheese. The sellers were selling them for $1.50 each or $18 for a dozen; minimum order that can be made is a half-dozen for $9.  The tamales had to be pre-ordered and paid for by October 26The form and payment had to be paid for Ms. Doris Tobin in room #407. Deliveries occurred on Thursday, November 1

 “Tamales sold quick, and everyone said they were delicious.” said Ms. Doris Tobin.  

Such success means another sale is in the planning.

“Pre-ordered early for the second tamale sale which will take place in December,” said Ms. Doris Tobin. 

Her second tamale sales will take place between the month or December, so students can have an opportunity to enjoy fresh tamales over winter break.
